There’s Still Time to Enroll for Winter and Spring Semesters at Garrett College!

"It's not too soon to make that New Year's resolution and take that course or enroll in that degree program you have been thinking or dreaming about," says Melissa Wass, Coordinator of Admissions at Garrett College. Enrollment, advising and registration for credit and non-credit programs at Garrett College are in-process and extend until just before the formal start of the winter and spring semesters, which begin on January 3rd and January 23rd, respectively. Continuing Education and Workforce Development course registration is available on an ongoing basis.

The College offers dozens of programs designed for all types of prospective students, offering a variety of programs including general studies, cyber security, the sciences, adventure sports and business administration. GC also offers a number of non-degree transfer and workforce development programs that can help students get a strong start and build a competitive advantage in today’s job market. According to Wass, "the College’s caring faculty, small class sizes, low student-to-faculty ratio and strong student support services provide a great environment to start or re-start a career. The low cost of attendance and the ability to transfer to other regional and national institutions also help students by limiting their debt burden after graduation."

Many of the above factors helped Admissions Counselor Holly Montana decide to attend Garrett College after graduating from Southern High School. "Going to Garrett was an easy decision for me. It was small and had a nice local flavor, yet offered a number of programs and activities that helped make my College experience a great one. I went on to get my Bachelors degree from Frostburg State University and wound up with the degree I wanted and a lot less college debt than a lot of my friends," stated Montana. "I came back to Garrett College to help other local and regional students get their start and build their careers at a place I love."
